Welcome to Prenups

In recent times, pre-nuptial agreements have become more commonplace, especially in circumstances where significant property or assets are involved.

Rulings in a number of key cases have also reinforced the standing of such agreements in UK law, adding to their importance in situations where relationships have broken down.

With the right approach and the right advice, pre-nuptial agreements can help both partners to clarify their respective positions when it comes to the assets of a marriage or civil partnership.

Handled correctly, this can act to take away some of the potential sources of conflict, allowing the relationship a sounder basis on which to progress.

Our family law team has considerable experience in advising parties on pre-nuptial agreements, using their tact and sensitivity to draw up sensible documents which both people can agree on.

We also bear in mind important directions from the courts on the admissibility of such agreements in the event of a relationship breakdown and build in such considerations when drawing up agreements and securing free and open consent from both parties.

Since we are part of a full service law firm, we can also call on the expertise of our specialist colleagues on areas including tax, property, pensions and other assets when drafting agreements so that they take into account more complex financial factors and consequences as well as the wishes of both parties.

For more information about pre-nuptial agreements and on how we can help you, please get in touch.
